Function Key List

WinOrbit uses function keys to speed some important operations (each of these functions can also be selected using the mouse, of course). Function keys (like F1) can be used with Shift (sF1), Alt (aF1), or Control (cF1) to perform different tasks. Also, check the various window menus, for additional function key possibilities.
